I have been told that after you have been married for 10 years, you have a better foundation for divorce. I will be married 10 years, next Feb,2011. I have only been separated since the end of July 2010. My husband is trying to push this divorce by the end of the year, and has admitted things to his attorney to make it so.

He seems desperate to get this over before the 10 year mark. Does he know more than he is telling me???

Well, i have only had a conseltation, once i retain her, she will check into this further, as my case is not the norm. She said it is possible. Its one of those, it depends on the case??? I just wondered if anyone knew for sure.

My ex and I separated just short of the 10th year. SC law says you have to wait 1 year before the divorce becomes final (under "normal" circumstances.) I didn't ask for alimony but I received it briefly because 1) I had been a stay-at-home Mom for most of our marriage and 2) he showed his behind in court and ticked off the judge. I received a small amount of alimony for 18 months to cover my opportunity to return to school and brush up on my skills so I could return to the work force again.

Havent been here for a while, but i wanted to update my situation. I have now been separated for almost 18 months. We did go to court over 1 year ago, i did get alimony and am still on his insurance. We are not legally separated. In my case, i am disabled, so im not sure how it will all work out. He has told me recently that he does not want a divorce, and really, i am not ready to go throught it. My attorney says i am better off right now, as i still own half of everything, and i am his beneficiary. Basically, we have 2 lawyers that are paid in full, and we are legally married. My lawyer says, when i am ready, let her know.

Going back to the 10 year mark. Yes, it does make a difference in the outcome.
